Veteran assistant coach Kim Tingley returns for her second season as an assistant coach with the women's basketball program at UNCW.

Tingley is responsible for recruiting, scouting and game day preparation and player development. She also assists with camps and clinics.

"I'm excited to have Kim on our staff," said UNCW Head Coach Adell Harris. "Kim is a passionate, tireless worker that believes in UNCW women's basketball.  From her experiences as a player at the University of Delaware to her experience as an assistant coach at Manhattan, Seton Hall & Kennesaw State, I feel Kim is the right fit for our program." 

In her first season with the program, Tingley played a key role in the development of the program’s backcourt. Senior Tawanna Lee ranked among the top 10 players in the CAA in 3-point field goals made (1.9), assists (2.9) and 3-point field goal percentage (.335) while sophomore guard Kelva Atkins earned All-Tournament Team honors at the CAA Championship after leading the Seahawks to a first-round victory over George Mason and a near upset of eventual tournament champion Delaware.

Tingley joined the Seahawks program in the summer of 2012 from Kennesaw State, where she spent one year as an assistant coach and served as interim head coach following the retirement of head coach Colby Tilley at the end of the season. In her lone campaign with the Owls, Tingley helped the program record its first Atlantic Sun Tournament victory and played a key role in the development of Atlantic Sun Conference Rookie-of-the-Year Taylor Mills. 

Prior to her time in Georgia, Tingley spent four seasons as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Seton Hall. Tingley was responsible for signing a pair of All-Big East Freshman Team selections and also had a recruiting class ranked in the Top 25.

Tingley began her coaching career as an assistant at Robert Morris in 2002-03 before moving to Manhattan. In three seasons with the Jaspers, Tingley was responsible for recruiting two Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference All-Freshman Team members.  In addition, Tingley monitored the academic progress of the women's basketball student-athletes, helping the program receive a No. 13 ranking in the Women's Basketball Coaches Association All-Academic Team Honor Roll for the 2004-05.

A native of Coudersport, Penn., Tingley is no stranger to the Colonial Athletic Association. She began her career at West Virginia before transferring to Delaware. Tingley helped the Blue Hens capture the 2001 America East Conference championship and earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament. In UD's first season in the CAA in 2002, the Blue Hens advanced to the Postseason WNIT.

A two-time Dean's List honoree at Delaware, Tingley graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Recreation and Park Management in 2002.
